It’s a nice 360 view of Ise on a clear day. On an even clearer day, you can see Mount Fuji which is 250km away. Even better yet if you have a drone that can take awesome pictures. This place is drone friendly, make sure before you fly.

A great stop on any day tour of the area. Fantastic views over the Ise Bay from the top of Mount Asama 1,820 ft. Gift shop and food outlet. Large car park. Site is a bit unkempt, could do with a spruce up and weed. Some uneven surfaces.

What a beautiful place to be, also there are hot springs not to far from the Observatory, you can drive to it or walk the view is breath taking and I highly recommend you to go when visiting Ise Mie.

Between Ise and Toba cities in Mie you will find the Ise Skyline road (1250 yen for cars; note that it isn't open 24 hours). It is a scenic route that will take you through an area dotted with oyster farms and dozens of restaurants offering up grilled oysters; some of which are "all you can eat" and at least one which I saw where you grilled your own outside on BBQs. I don't do oysters, so didn't partake, mind you. About 7km from the Toba end of the skyline is the observatory. The view over the ocean is gorgeous on a clear day.

On top of the building, you can enjoy the hot foot bath while enjoying the view. There is an honor box which asks for a 100-yen donation to use it. In winter and early spring, be sure to bring a towel to dry your feet.

Near the observatory is a temple, Kongoushou-ji. It isn't particularly amazing. Inside are three large golden holy items, but you can barely see them through the lattice work. At the top of the hill, however, is an interesting grave yard with 'fences' where each 2x4 is someone's tomb 'stone'.

Once you get to Toba, if driving from Ise, you could then drive along the "Pearl Road", another scenic drive that is free. We actually drove from Shima, up the Pearl Road, and then along the Skyline on our way back to Nagoya as it was overcast the day before.

There were signs for the entrance of the Ise Skyline in Ise, but if using a GPS, just put in the phone number of the observatory.

We took a drive up here after the visit to the Ise Shrine. What a drive, what a view, what an experience, what fun!!!!! At one end, you get to see a paranomic view of the Ise Bay and on the other end, beautiful blue alps of Mie looking westwards towards Nara. The observatory comes with a footpath to walk and venture, plus a leg hot spring to rest and warm your legs. We spend over an hour at the top and took a drive down in the opposite direction towards Toba.

We were going from Toba to Ise Grand Shrine when the GPS brought us to use the Ise Skyline route. On a clear day, you can see the stretch of coast from Toba to Isuzu River and beyond. There is a free foot bath at one end of the observatory. The observatory has a shop and a small restaurant

The Ise-Shima Skyline Observatory has beautiful views, if it's good weather you can see for miles and miles ... it's rather quiet and peaceful, too! It can get extremely windy up there ... so hang on to your hat!

A short drive from Ise jingu on the hill top you find this natural hot spring where you can bathe your feet while looking out over the sea. A serene place to visit. Again, not well known to foreign tourists. A must see.
